I don’t know if I’ve mentioned this before but 1968 and 1972 are my favorite Olympic Years for design. Alphanumeric has an unbelievable collection of Otl Aicher work including 1972 Munich Olympics artifacts. Aicher definitely did a superb job with the Munich identity all the way down to these small items with attention to every last detail. It’s crazy to think that the majority of people who attended the olympics this year didn’t hang on to these gems, I certainly would have.

I ran across some posts early this morning on ISO50 and thesilverlining.
